Intra-operative fusion of Video stream for foetal surgery Intra-operative fusion of Video stream for foetal surgery

Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome is a serious complication of monocorial pregnancies where foetuses share part of the circulatory system. To save the babies, the surgeon enters the womb with a millimetric laser waveguide and coagulate the anastomoses between the vessels. However, the intervention is extremely complex and we are developing an assisted surgical planning to improve the success rate. In this project, the student will work on the realtime fusion of the fetoscopic RGB video with a previous MRI-US model of the anatomy of the placenta and the babies.

Expertise programming with python is required, previous knowledge of OpenCV and computer vision is a plus.

The project is in collaboration with Hospital San Juan de Déu and Vicomtech.
